About the LRCC-SLA AmeriCorps Program:

The Squam Lakes Association is a non-profit conservation organization that 
works to conserve the natural beauty, peaceful character, and resources of the 
Squam watershed. Through conservation, education, and low-impact recreation, 
the SLA promotes the protection, careful use, and shared enjoyment of the Squam 
Lakes Region.  The Squam Lakes Association has six half-year positions (22.5 
weeks) available for the summer/fall Lakes Region Conservation Corps program. 
LRCC-SLA members scuba dive to remove aquatic invasive species, act as 
caretakers of our backcountry campsites, maintain the SLA's 50+ miles of 
trails, monitor water quality, lead volunteer crews, run engaging environmental 
education programs, remove terrestrial invasive species, educate the public on 
local and regional conservation initiatives, and more. LRCC-SLA members receive 
numerous certifications, including scuba diving certification, weed control 
diver certification, and wilderness first aid. Housing is provided for LRCC-SLA 
members on the SLA's campus. While serving with the SLA, LRCC-SLA members will 
also spend nights out camping while they act as campsite caretakers at SLA's 
low-impact island campsites.
